Because science doesn't take preference into account. Specs wise, something may be better, but it doesn't matter how good it is, if you don't like the way it sounds, it's not better to YOU.
Science is good for proving things in absolute. But when a topic is subjective, science is useless. You can't tell me why scientifically I'm physically attracted to one person over another...it's subjective. You may think that person is "meh..." when I may think she's the prettiest thing on the planet.
Or the fact why many people think one amp sounds better than the other, when specs wise, one is actually LOWER in "quality" of parts.
It's all subjective. And subjectivity puts science to rest. AKA, forget the science, just listen to the music....
